So, I installed Kingo 1.2.2.1915, installed Samsung drivers, and Kingo would not root the device, it kept saying USB debugging was off, and I verified several times it was on. So I went the Vroot method and it rooted in 3 seconds (seriously). I was surprised it went so fast. I was able to install Safestrap successfully, but after I rebooted (and can see Safestrap recovery on reboot), the phone no longer has root. I tried rooting again using either Kingo or Vroot, now neither app will detect my device. They both behave like USB debugging is off, but it's clearly on. Otherwise, the device works fine. Any thoughts?
